As mentioned in an answer to this question, bindfs can be used to create a remapped mounting of a directory or filesystem with modified userid. This seems to work acceptably for me. I just did sudo bindfs -u myusername fs-mountpoint new-mountpoint and it happened. I'm not sure how well this will work in fstab, though, since bindfs is a FUSE filesystem.


For me, it was a matter of looking at what was IN my keychain… and matching that up with my auto_smb map... /../Volumes/ServiceData -fstype=smbfs,soft ://home._smb._tcp.local/ServiceData


What you're looking for is bind mounts. See http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man8/mount.8.html for details. Here is a step by step guide to moving /home, /opt, /tmp, /usr, and /var to a single separate partition. Disclaimer I am not responsible for any damage or loss of data caused by following this guide.

Unfortunatelly I was mistaken. After a reboot, the filesystem in question did not mount to the mountpoint and I did not realize this before doign a rsync on the mount point. This resulted in a filled up file system as the intended LVM volume was not mounted. The solution was just to delete the directory.


This is the problem with thin provisioning. You can pretend you have as much space as you want and it works great. Up until you actually use all the space and things fall over. The actual space is what is important, not the thin volume size. You are free to mount additional file systems at /bricks/brick1 or wherever you want. This isolates problems if it ...


Glusterfs is a virtual fs, as far as i remember - it stores data in files in the underlying fs. So yes, if you want to mount glusterfs on some directory - make sure tha underlying partition is big enough.


Your ancient OS is 32bit something being returned to it is too large for a 32bit value. There is more about the general problem -here. There is an equally ancient bug report which suggests that the problem is intermittent and suggests downgrading to an earlier version of findutils (findutils-4.1.7-25)- although I wouldn't want to go making changes to that ...
